One-third of Asus Eee PC users to run Linux

That's right. You didn't need to do paste-up classified ads for your high school newspaper to figure out that the news here is that Linux will be running on a third of Asustek's Eee PCs. Windows being installed on PCs is no more news than "Dog Bites Man." It's "Man Bites Dog" that's interesting.

So, the main news, buried under that misleading headline, is that Asustek plans to sell 5 million Eee PCs in 2008. Which -- let's do the math here -- I think means that the Taiwanese company plans on selling 1.66 million Linux PCs.
